On December 19th, ESPN’s Jayson Stark named the White Sox as one of eleven teams interested in free agent starter Mark Prior. However, White Sox GM Kenny Williams was asked whether he had interest in Prior yesterday and replied in the negative (hat tip to South Side Sox). So, no Prior jerseys on the south side.
The current scoreboard on Prior: the Red Sox, Mets, Cardinals, Padres, Astros, Giants, Reds, Nationals, Marlins, and Indians are in. The Yankees, White Sox, Rangers, Phillies, and Pirates are out. Buster Olney recently said that Prior could make his decision by this evening and named San Diego as the frontrunner.
